Saw some­thing you like in a blogshop? A typ­i­cal smart­phone will prob­a­bly have you tak­ing a sim­ple screen­shot and it goes into your photo gallery – which is an un­sorted mess at best. That, or you might be check­ing for the best deal across a few sites, and book­mark­ing mul­ti­ple pages can be­come a real pain since you need to click to view each deal and list­ing. The S Pen helps to or­ga­nize your e-shop­ping into a more sen­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.

Sim­ply hold the S Pen near the screen's sur­face, and press the but­ton on the sty­lus. A float­ing Air Com­mand menu ap­pears, and the Smart Se­lect fea­ture is what you're look­ing for. Once you've high­lighted your choice, tap the 'Share' at the top of the dis­play, and se­lect Save to Scrap­book. This step is im­por­tant be­cause of the Scrap­book app's in­her­ent func­tion­al­i­ties - the in-built Scrap­book stores a copy of your screen­shot, to­gether with the URL of the page you saved.

There's also Screen Write in Air Com­mand, which lets you doo­dle on your screen­shots be­fore sav­ing, so you can make im­por­tant an­no­ta­tions to high­light de­tails such as cir­cling the 'free de­liv­ery' clause on the page. Within Screen Write, there's a new Note func­tion­al­ity called Scroll Cap­ture that lets you snap long screen­shots of up to 22 pages ver­ti­cally, mak­ing it ex­tremely handy for sites like Ama­zon with mul­ti­ple list­ings of the same prod­uct. If you only want a crop of the screen­shot for bet­ter fo­cus, there's also the lasso draw­ing tool in Smart Se­lect, which can be fur­ther re­fined with Auto Shape once you're done trac­ing.

To top it off, the S Pen's tip is fine enough to press those ridicu­lously small X on pop-up ads. While it's a con­ve­nience fea­ture at best, it is nice to be able to shop with­out in­ter­rup­tion.

Sim­ply press Cap­ture More for longer web­pages and hit Done when sat­is­fied.

Sam­ple of scroll cap­ture.
